Security Testing Tools – Sysinternals
One of the goals of this blog is post helpful tools and tips regarding software security testing and writing secure code. Hopefully someone will read one of these posts and it will help them write safer, and better code.
Over the next few months I will be posting different tools that can be used to discover faults in applications, and potential security problems. These tools will include process and handle enumerators, web proxies, fuzzers, and any other tool I consider useful and important.
For starters, I have added a link to Sysinternals on my Blog Roll to the right. Sysinternals was a company started by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell in 1996. They created numerous tools for application debugging and analysis. These tools are offered for free and are essential to a security tester. Give a look around at them on your own if you’d like. I will be revisiting many of them individually in the coming months.
